Brendon Darby, Artist: Website
Client: Audio Art
Brendon Darby is a Western Australian artist and musician whose colourful and evocative portrayals of the Australian Landscape highlight his particular love of the birdlife of the Australian Bush.
Illustrated on the right is the splash screen for Brendon's latest exhibition: "Ilma". Brendon had the unique opportunity of visiting the Aboriginal people known as the Bardi on the Dampierland Peninsula in the North West.
These people do not paint their ancestral stories (Ilma) but invited Brendon to interpret for them in his unique style.
Brendon's current project,
"Listening to Paintings - Australia" is a work in progress, which will combine paintings of the Australian landscape from around the country with original music, live performances, digital video and interactive CD-ROMs.
This website presents Galleries of Brendon's paintings from his recent
shows in Perth, Margaret River and Sydney, and audio samples and images
of the prints for "Listening to Paintings - Kakadu" . In addition,
it features video excerpts from his "Listening to Paintings - Australia"
project, which shows Brendon on location in remote areas of the Australian
bush, creating music and paintings inspired by the ambient sights and
Brendon's portrait of chef Ian Parmenter was selected as a finalist
for the 2001 Archibald Prize, and can be seen on his site.
